Welcome to the Sewing Style Bra-Making Mondays, a bra sew-along for the Marlborough Bra from Orange Lingerie. You are in for a treat and we plan to have fun and make the most gratifying garment you have ever made: a bra.
Bra-Making Mondays is scheduled for 5 weeks of bra-making in community with others, casual, private and fun, every Monday evening (2nd session begins August 3 at 7pm. Registration is $75 per person for 5-week sessions. Your five weeks will include a discount code to purchase a kit from Bra Builders and guidance from bra-making experts. Upon sign up, you will get prepped with resources and begin bra-making with others. Below are a few suggestions to enhance your bra-making experience in the Zoom Sewing Room.
Ensure the Zoom app is on your phone or whatever device you will be using.
It would also be a good idea to make sure your camera can be flexible enough for the instructors to see your table and/or sewing machine area to be able to help you.
When you register for the Bra-Making Mondays, purchase your kit right away to ensure timely delivery of your kit. No rush, Bra Builders knows of our program and are expecting your orders...they are even giving all participants 15% off kit purchasing with the code: SEWINGMYSTYLE
This is a sew-along style program where everyone is sewing and making bras, so bring your excitement and questions for the experts and other bra-makers and have some fun!
We will be making the Marlborough Bra, from Orange Lingerie, designed with all the components of a great bra, including an opportunity to learn the anatomy of a bra so you can continue your bra-making experience with design ease. Only download the instructions and size pages you need - there’s a bunch of pages. As soon as you register, order and download your bra and begin kit shopping.
Below are next steps along with the partner resources for your bra-making convenience, feel free to respond with questions. We are available anytime to help you get started.
Thank you and see you soon!
